We recently we gave you a few tips on how to display your jewelry at a flea market, how much you should be paying
for a booth and where to get additional displays and stands for your jewelry.
This week we would like to to answer a few questions sent in by some of our users. We encourage all of our users to try and contribute as much as possible.
1. I have never seen sets of 30 or more rings for sale on your site… what would it be listed under ?
Try searching “lot” in the search box. Occasionally, we will have a few lots of rings on auction. Lots will range from 12 to 36 pieces or more. You will get really good deals here.
2. The only trouble with flea markets is the pilfering, especially on an open tray. How much would you say was too much to lose?
As a seller, you should be trying for as little loss as possible. Try securing loose rings and other pieces with an inexpensive chain or wire so that they appear to be on an open tray but are secure.
3. How can I be a reseller on a limited income?
Slowly build up your inventory by buying a piece here and a few pieces there. Look for gift sets that can be easily broken up and sold as individual pieces. Buy gold pieces that will not lose their value. Reselling gold jewelry will make you the most profit.
4. What if I just wanted to sell watches? Which brand will sell the best?
Try not to limit yourself to one category of jewelry. The most successful sellers carry a little bit of everything and also communicate to their customers that they can get any type of jewelry they request.
Which type of flea market do you recommend me trying first? The most popular large flea market or one on the smaller side?
It depends on the size of your jewelry inventory. If you have a lot of items to sell try the larger flea market to take advantage of the sizeable flow of customers.
Remember that most sellers have booths at multiple locations at least three days a week.
